SweetAs is the first dessert delivery concept to hit NZ and it goes a lil’ something like this: they bake delights such as Oreo, Tim Tam and New York cheesecake, and peanut butter and choc brownies daily before delivering to sweet craving citizens after 6pm (when most cafes have closed their doors!). SweetAs deliver by the slice and will be at your door within a speedy 45 minutes. Better yet, they whip up old-school thickshakes and milkshakes to wash it all down.
As if Uber itself wasn’t enough to grace the streets of Auckland—we now have UberEats to save us from trouble, unfortunately for you North Shore peeps you’ll have to wait a little while longer.
